SUB THEME : SOME BIBLICAL EXAMPLES OF GODLY LEADERSHIP .
TOPIC : Moses and Joshua .
MEMORY VERSE : Joshua 1: 5
TEXT: Hebrews 11: 24-30 .
AIMS: To help participants
Moses and Joshua played very significant roles in Israel’s march toward
nationhood. Both of them received distinct calls from God to lead His Covenant
people. Whereas Moses championed their forceful exit from their Egyptian
bondage and led them through the wilderness, Joshua took them into the
Promised Land. This study examines some of the qualities which distinguished
Moses and Joshua in their leadership, and how we can appropriate same for
the multivariate leadership responsibilities we are saddled with today .
1. Which personality traits may have led to the appointments of Moses and
Joshua by God as leaders? Exod. 2:11; 18:24; Josh. 24: 14-15, Heb. 11:
2. How will you describe their personal relationships with God, and in what
ways did these help them in their leadership? Exod. 20: 18-21; Num. 12:
5-8; Jos. 1: 5; 24: 14-15; Heb. 3: 5 .
3. What leadership roles or traits portray Moses and Joshua as godly leaders?
Exod.24:12-14; 33:11; Num.12:1-8; 27:1ff; Heb.11:24-2 .7
4. Read Exodus 17:8-13 .
a. Discuss the nature of the relationship between Moses and Joshua and
highlight a fundamental principle for excelling in leadership .
b. How have leaders fared in this regard in our churches/dioceses?
Moses’ privileged opportunity of growing up in Pharaoh’s court,
and his subsequent vocation as a shepherd, and Joshua’s position as Moses’
assistant were sufficient bases for learning the skills that enabled them excel
as leaders. We must learn to optimally harness whatever opportunities we have
to equip ourselves for future responsibilities.
FOOD FOR THOUGHT :
Moses raised Joshua as a worthy successor. Do you
have a successor?
